Also, job seekers find creating interactive video as resumes as an extra nudge in to a company and a better way of marketing themselves for employers. However, conflict occurs between employers and job seekers regarding an interactive video resume. As it simplifies the recruitment process, job seekers have to put down more work when creating an interactive video resume while applying for a job. It is shown in this thesis that there are factors that should be investigated, for instance a platform aimed at interactive video resumes seems not have been developed yet as well as what interactive features an interactive video resume should contain.
